Reviews for the MALIBAL Veda

80% Malibal Veda
Source: CNet English
It seems that boutique notebook builder Malibal (pronounced mal-la-bull) is ready to see desktops die. The company specializes in custom-built desktop replacements. No thin-and-lights. No ultraportables. No "mainstream" models. The Veda series is its largest, with an 18.4-inch LCD that can be loaded with Core 2 Quad Extreme QX9300 (ours was), 8GB of DDR3 memory (had that, too), and it comes standard with dual Nvidia GeForce GTX280M graphics cards. However, while the components are top-notch, the design could use some help. If you're ready to give up your gaming desktop once and for all, consider replacing it with the Malibal Veda series laptop.

Two GeForce GTX 280M graphics cards in SLI combination. The performance is about 0-40% faster than a single GTX 280M, depending on the application. Due to the SLI setup, users may experience micro stuttering, especially in the 30fps range.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

Mid-range dual core processor with 3 MB level 3 cache and a TDP of 25 Watt.

5.7 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.

MALIBAL: MALIBAL (pronounced mal-la-bull is located in Las Vegas and focusses high-end, customized notebook computers and mobile servers.
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
